Barbara is having trouble getting the artichoke to stick to the top of McCrary's trophy. She is going to try James's favorite sculpting medium Durham Rock Hard Water Putty which she bought at Cottin's. We shall see if it sticks.

Deb talked to Lisa the new manager at the League who has a box of shards for us. When it's full it's $2. Barbara talked to her today and she said it wasn't full yet. Lisa said she has done mosaics. She's an artist and was an antique dealer. Very nice person.


Any other notes.


Topic- sculptural mediums. Has anybody ever incorporated fimo clay into a mosaic.



That Durham Rock Hard Water putty worked well to glue the artichoke to the trophy. You can sculpt with that too.

See ball attached with no grout that I see. I saw it on Julie Silbers facebook page.
